Explore Gothenburg's Music History
Gothenburg City Museum has created a big exhibition to celebrate and explore the modern music history of Gothenburg. Photos, music, and text trace the history of music here from 1955 to the present day and explain why Gothenburg sounds the way it does. Topics covered include 1970s political music, intense punk, and local Håkan Hellström, who is the best-selling singer in Sweden today.
